Apex 4.2 developer page not showing up after installing over 10g

Hi there,

So as luck would have it my Win XP OS crashed. Yes, its the office laptop and I cannot upgrade the OS for now. Anyhow, I got the whole machine re-imaged and installed 10g which had version 2.1 and everything was okay. I was earlier running apex 4.1.1. I could not find that setup on the oracle site so I downloaded apex 4.2 and ran the installation as per page

Everything went through properly except for step

5. Log back into SQL*Plus (as above) and load images:

SQL> @apxldimg.sql APEX_HOME

[Note: APEX_HOME is the directory you specified when unzipping the file. For example, with Windows 'C:\'.]

where it asked me to enter the directory and I entered C:\

This is what happened

SQL> @apxldimg.sql

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Enter value for 1: C:\
old 1: create directory APEX_IMAGES as '&1/apex/images'
new 1: create directory APEX_IMAGES as 'C:\/apex/images'

Directory created.


I see a backslash and forward slash so I did a ctrl c . When I tried running the command again - @apxldimg.sql

it just would open the .sql file.

Not sure if this is the issue, but anyhow, after this, when I tried the "go to database page. It just shows a blank page. Any idea what needs to be done. I was happy with 4.1.1. Is that available anywhere? Maybe I can remove XE and do a fresh install with that.

Please advise.
